    Thanks, David. It was difficult to try to elicit any emotion or diversity of subjective thought for the reader in this particular Tanka but perhaps it introduced the form to others who may appreciate its possibilities.

    Thank you, Mohammed. The brevity of this form and haiku, force the writer to impart a lot, tersely
